Pianist Grant Levin has made a name for himself in short order since moving to the Bay Area, and we’ve been hearing from him at BirdÂ & Beckett in a number of contexts with more comingÂ up — sitting in with our regular Friday bands, playing as a member ofÂ the groups called Hawkeye and Homespun, adding crucial flavor to projects with seasonedÂ bassist Peter Barshay, renowned reedman Noel Jewkes and vocalist Sandra Aran.Â Each time, it’s a pleasure to experience the rich, inventiveÂ languageÂ that Grant Levin brings to the keyboard.
This weekend — Sunday, July 14th — we’re pleased to present Grant leadingÂ a trio of his own, with bassist Glenn Richman and drummer Mark Lee.Â Don’t miss this chance to get the full flavor of Grant’s assured, hip and graceful style.
Then, come back for more on July 21st, when Grant joins in a dialog with veteran reedman Noel Jewkes and again on July 28 to hear him back vocalist Sandra Aran in her latin tinged quartet.Â We’ll hearÂ from Grant again later in the fall, with Hawkeye on August 25th and Homespun in late October.Â Get hip to one of the top echelon young jazz players on the local scene.
It’s just one of those things…Â a trip to the moon on gossamer wings…Â jazz!
